Welcome to July!

Hello everyone, welcome to the chilly month of July. Winter has finally arrived after quite a warm first half of the year. Our days are shorter and colder.

Often I wish I was there, but for me, the only great thing, apart from the weather in the UK now, is the amiable relationship I have with her.

I guess it’s that aspect of looking for our place in history and unearthing what it means to be human. I have always believed that much of the answers to our present and future lie in the past.

I hope you enjoy the books I’ve selected for this special post! Continue reading “Adventure in archaeology”
